All the way across the Atlantic Ocean, The Wadden Sea Centre is celebrated for keeping it local. On Friday September 18th, our thatched gem brought home its fifth prize, taking first place in the Environmental Leadership category of the Canadian AZ Awards 2020. 

"This is simply a stunning project, with a formal invention that achieves so much with so little to connect the inside and out," says juror Marion Weiss about the project.
